Requesting a directory is a valid request. The server should provide a
default document from that directory.

This happens because sysadmins disable directory indexing on their
webservers and then program in redirects on browser requests for directory
roots where no default document is made available.

I get 404s from this site

unless I append a trailing slash. This is the case with any browser. It is
the server failing to ensure that a default document is always available to
requesting clients.
